Best Places to Watch Anime Legally in the USA

The USA is one of the growing anime markets after Japan. Despite all this craze on Anime, there is still no good method to access anime series, especially those which are currently airing in Japan. Many people rely on illegally pirated platforms to get access to the latest and popular anime series. Despite what others believe, there are still few platforms for anime where you can watch anime legally. They also publish the latest anime as soon as possible. If you are currently using pirated platforms, then you should start using legal sites because you don’t want to get into trouble because you wanted to watch the latest episode of Naruto before any of your friends did.

Watch anime legally in the USA

Watch anime Legally in the USA

If you are from the USA and wants to watch anime legally, then you have come to the right place. In this article, we shall all the legal platforms for watching anime.

1. Crunchyroll

Crunchyroll is currently the king of legal anime streaming. It is also the biggest online platform in the USA. It is streaming hundreds and thousands of anime for free. You can also create an account to keep track of your watching history. And if you want to access the even bigger database, then you need to choose a paid subscription which is not that expensive.

Crunchyroll also lets you read manga online for free. Crunchyroll should be your one-stop destination for anything anime. You can watch anime, participate in anime conversation on their forum, read manga online, and buy anime souvenir all from one platform.

2. Netflix

Netflix

Netflix is also in a hurry to capture the anime market by adding more and more anime series and movies to its library. In today’s Netflix you can find a huge variety of anime and anime movies that are available for watching for any Netflix subscriber in the USA. Netflix also added a new Anime section for easier navigation. Almost all anime comes with both English subtitle and English dubbed variant. While Netflix is working round to clock to add more and more anime series to the platform, it still has to add more to satisfy the hunger of anime fans.

Who is Netflix for? There is no doubt that Netflix lacks some popular anime series, but if you consider all the shows, series and movies you are getting with Netflix is balances it. If you are only thinking of subscribing Netflix for Anime, then don’t. If you watch other Netflix series and movies, then it is good.

Don’t know what to watch with your new Netflix subscription? You can start watching by checking out some of my most favorite romantic anime series.

3. Funimation

Funimation

Funimation is also a big name in the online anime business. It is a direct competitor of Crunchyroll. You can access both free and paid anime on this platform. The library of Anime series is also as compared to Crunchyroll and Netflix. Funimation is great, but it also lacks in user experience. For a starter, it is awfully painful to distinguish free anime and paid anime. You will have to play an anime to see if it is available for free users or not. It is both tiring and time-consuming. The app for Android and iOS is also far from perfect and also if you are a free user you can not access anime from their app.

With all this in mind, only if you are a paid subscriber, then Funimation is worth your time. But if you are planning to use as a free subscriber, then you are better off with Crunchyroll.

With these 3 anime platforms you can watch anime legally in the USA. If you are still using those pirates networks then it is high time for you to move to the paid/legal anime platform.

How to Read Manga Online Anywhere on Android and iOS

Manga is part of Anime culture. Many believe that if you enjoy anime, then you must be liking Manga as well. There is a very strong reason to believe as well. Manga is just a visual form of Manga; many anime series are even inspired or direct version of Manga. There used to be a time when Anime and Manga were only popular in Japan. But thanks to globalization, it is now easier than ever to watch a full-length anime series or read complete manga series from any part of the world.

Traditionally Mangas were only available through their dedicated books much like Comic books in the USA. But now thanks to the rapid growth in technology you can read Manga without carrying any Manga book with you. You can do that by using your smartphone.

How to Read Manga Online Anywhere on Android and iOS

There are many services both legal and illegal. I am a law-abiding citizen, and you should be too. I will only share legal ways and apps to read Manga online.

Crunchyroll

Crunchyroll is among the top anime distributor for most of the world. Even though Crunchyroll is mainly known for Anime collection, you will be pleased to know that Crunchyroll has one of the largest Manga collections as well.

You can access to a limited number of Manga collection as a free subscriber, but however, if you subscribe to their monthly plan, you can access the whole collection of Manga online. That subscription also comes with thousands of Anime as well. Crunchyroll has apps for both Android and iOS so that you can enjoy an anime show or read a manga anytime and anywhere you like.

Yes completely free! You can access to huge database of beautiful Manga series for free from anywhere in the world. Manga Box is available for web users at mangabox.me and smartphone users, they have apps for both Android and iOS.

Yen Press

Yen Press is also a known name for most anime/manga fans. You can find pretty much any Manga book here. Yen Pass works a little differently. It doesn’t host any Manga book itself. Rather it sells on digital platforms like Kindle, Google Play, iBook, Kobo and other digital eBook readers. You can buy a single book, or you can buy a couple of books in bulk to get a good discount.

The only problem I had with this app is that this service is very Noth-America centric. If you live in those regions than you are lucky. For others like me who live in other parts of the world, the collection is very limited. It is not a deal breaker, but I thought I should mention.

These are 3 most useful ways to read Mangas online on Android and iOS phones. Do you use services from any of the above-mentioned providers? I will love to know your results.

How to Record WhatsApp call On Android and iOS Devices

Call recording is one of the standard features for many smartphones. Even if some phones don’t support natively, you can enable this feature fairly easily by using countless auto call recording apps. But that can not be said for VoIP based calls like WhatsApp and truth to be told many peoples are moving to WhatsApp and similar apps for voice calls and as well as videos all thanks to cheaper internet plans.

Recording a WhatsApp call is very tough and not a pleasant experience. Many third-party apps struggle to provide quality call recording feature for WhatsApp call and don’t even think for a second that there are native features for this. Because no OS by default accepts VoIP based apps. In this article, we will try to ease that process by mentioning ways to record WhatsApp calls on Android and iOS.

Record-WhatsApp-Calls-on-Androidi-and-iOS

But before we do, it is worth mentioning that recording a call without the other person’s permission is not just unethical it is also illegal. Also, make sure to learn about the local laws before recording a call.

How to Record WhatsApp call on iPhone

Recording WhatsApp calls on the iPhone requires both iPhone and Mac. Yes, you heard it right. There is no other way around this. This process sounds awful but as I said there is no other way around.

Follow the below steps carefully to be able to record WhatsApp calls on the iPhone successfully.

  • Connect your iPhone to the Mac using lighting cable.
  • You might get a prompt on iPhone if you are connecting your iPhone to the mac for the first time. Select ‘Trust this computer‘ on iPhone if you get that prompt.
  • Open Quick Time Player app on Mac and from the File select New Audio Recording.
  • Next to the record button, you can see a downward pointed arrow. Click on that and select your iPhone.
  • Now hit the recording button on your Mac Quick Time Player.
  • Now make a call on WhatsApp. Once done hit stop recording and disconnect your iPhone from your PC.

Your recording should be saved on your Mac.

I realize that this method is complicated and if someone doesn’t use a Mac cannot use this technique. But trust me if there were any other way around this I would’ve found and mentioned here.

How to Recording WhatsApp call on Android

There are many auto call recording apps on the Google Play Store, but most of them struggle when it comes to WhatsApp or similar VoIP based call recordings. One of the apps that I found working fine is the Cube Call Recorder. Don’t cheer yet because this app also comes with caveats. Due to hardware limitation this app doesn’t work with many smartphones. They have a link to a Google Spreadsheet on their app page on Google Play Store where you can see all the phones that Cube app supports.

Like for example, I couldn’t make this app work on my OnePlus 6t, but this app worked just fine on my old OnePlus One. So before you try, I would suggest you to check if your phone is listed on this list.

Follow these steps to Record WhatsApp calls on Android phones.

  • First, download the Cube Call Recording app from the Google Play Store.
  • Allow all the necessary permission to the app.
  • Now make a call on WhatsApp and see if you can see a Cube app widget on the screen with the recording button. If it is there, then you are good to go.
  • If it is not, then open the app again and go to setting. There you can see an option labeled as ‘Force VoIP call as voice call.‘ Turn on that feature.
  • Now make a call on WhatsApp again. If you see the recording widget then congrats you can now record WhatsApp calls. If you don’t see any option then, unfortunately, there is nothing that can be done.

I hope you found this article helpful. If you know any other app for Android that you are personally using and working just fine then let me know in comments. I will include this here with proper credit. Similarly, if you know any app or other methods for recording WhatsApp call on iOS devices, then I am ready to listen.

Thank you for reading so far into the article. Hope you have a nice day.
